The skin can tell you about your tendency to depression

Stress and depression can lead to quite serious consequences, but to determine who is prone to developing such conditions is very difficult. Researchers from the University of the Australian city of Newcastle are confident that on inclination with high accuracy can tell human skin. In particular, we are talking about the reaction of the sweat glands on the so-called "acoustic shock", when a person is frightened of sudden noises and for a long time can not calm down. The researchers say that the longer a person wakes up, the more he is prone to depression and stress. They proved it during the experiment.

Usually, when a person hears a loud Bang, he quickens the heartbeat, impaired breathing and increased sweating. With each repetition of the sound people are showing less fear and, as shown by early studies, the longer the addiction, the weaker the human psychological stability. This, in turn, just points to the predisposition of an individual to the development of depression.

To test this, a research group headed by Professor Eugene Nalivaiko, conducted an experiment. First, she interviewed 30 young volunteers and find out what they think about their mental health. The researchers then conducted a test in which they were subjected by acoustic shock and checked their speed of habituation on the analysis of the sweat glands.

The Results showed that people who consider themselves prone to stress and depression really get used to the noise much more slowly than others. The researchers hope that this method of recognition is prone to psychological disorders, people will be actively used in the military sector and educational institutions to take preventive measures.

What do you think, is it true scientists, or have you noticed in the experiment, some weaknesses? Your opinion write in the comments and don't forget to join where you can discuss science news and technology!
